Who I am:
I am a positive, thoughtful, and optimistic gentleman, I have a great sense of humor, and my mind is always open. My belief system can be summarized as religiously agnostic, fiscally conservative, and socially libertarian. I have a wide variety of interests, and I love trying new things. I'm an honest man, so you can always count on getting the truth from me, but I expect the same respect and courtesy from those I spend my time with. I am independent: I cook, I clean, I vacuum, I swiffer, I wash and fold laundry, and I keep everything in my home neat and organized. I have a good job that I am happy with, a good salary, excellent credit, my own vehicle, and my own place. I don't smoke or use drugs, but I might drink alcohol on a rare occasion. My top priorities are my health and my financial future.
Why I am here:
I'd like to meet a mature, respectable, and responsible adult from the Metairie area to have fun with, date, and get to know. I definitely like the idea of having something mutually exclusive with someone and seeing where it goes, but I am too old and burnt out to play chase and make the grand effort while getting nothing in return; I have too many more important things going on to worry about that, and I am quick to tell when someone is a waste of my time. When I meet someone I like, I don't have any expectations besides honesty and maturity, and I don't like to rush things, but once I agree to be exclusive then you will never have to worry about me breaking that commitment. Eventually, I'd really like to have a companion to share everything with, who will have my back and be supportive of my goals and ambitions, and who will make an effort to partake in my interests. Overall, I want to meet someone who makes me smile and can make me feel more alive each day and complement my life. If the right woman comes along, she'll make sure that I know.
What I like:
I'm a sucker for women who take initiative and do nice things or can make me laugh, and you get bonus points if you are confident in yourself and are not afraid of what other people think, have a great sense of humor, are good with kids, love animals (especially dogs), enjoy working out and eating healthily, are into cuddling when it rains, like to hold hands, are intelligent, are honest and have a sense of integrity, are educated well enough to use proper grammar (this is a must), can handle your liquor, are a good person for the sake of being good, are skilled in the necessity of communication, and are a free-thinking individual who likes to learn new things and explore new ideas.
What I dislike:
I've been through a lot of trial and error and I think it's best that I offer my dislikes as well, just to narrow things down. I don't watch television outside of Netflix and DVD's. I don't eat fast food at all. I have no interest in professional sports, and I actually like it when the Saints lose (for various reasons). If I have to support a college team, it's going to be Alabama over LSU. I refuse to be around drugs, including mar*juana; I've dated more than my fair share of losers, so I have no tolerance for people who are going nowhere in life. You will never see me boiling crawfish or shooting animals; I value all life, so no hunters. I am more likely to win the lottery and get hit by lightning in the same day than go to church, so be ready to keep your religion to yourself; my children, if I choose to have any, will be raised in an environment free from religious brainwashing, and there is no room for compromise on that. I am attracted to intelligence, so if you are a fan of Obama then you are disqualified. I am all for people doing whatever makes them happy, but if you're older than 25 and your next goal is to save up for a new tattoo then it's probably time for you to grow up. No mothers, please; I've tried that and it doesn't work. No black women. Oh, and cats...I dislike cats.
I stay busy working nights and weekends, so send me a message if you'd like to talk. If I like your profile then I will make time to reply.
